Prep 15 mins

Cook 10-12 Minutes

Serves 10


  • 110g Salted Butter
  • 3 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 100g Dark Muscovado Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 225g Plain Flour
  • 50g Icing Sugar
  • Assorted Biscuit Cutters

How to:

  1. Heat the butter, syrup and sugar together in a small pan on the hob stirring until melted. Set the pan aside to cool slightly. Preheat the oven to 190c/Gas5.
  2. Mix the bicard, ginger, cinnamon and flour in a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the butter-sugar mixture. Stir, using your hands to form a dough. Wrap the dough in clingfilm.
  3. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes before laying it between two big sheets of baking paper. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, turning it as you go, until it is as thick as a £1 coin.
  4. Cut your shapes with your Easter cutters. Place on a lined baking sheet, bake for 10-12 mins, until light golden brown. Let them cool.
  5. Meanwhile, make the icing by adding water to the icing sugar to create a thick consitency. You can either pipe pretty patterns or colour the icing and top the biscuits. Unleash your creativity!
